Free. Glutenfree toasts ;-) Great greenhouses to visit. Tea house offers a good quality food but service is really slow so have time. Located in the west it s easy to reach by foot and there is lots of place to be quiet.

Beautiful gardens and buildings just off Byres road. Gorgeous place to visit even if the weather isn't great as you can visit the indoor tropical area. If you love to feed squirrels bring some nuts and they will eat out of your hands.

We walked around this beautiful park on a sunny day. The park is well kept and flowers were lovely. We would recommend anyone to visit as it is free and managed by the council. Walking around is easy as the paths are suitable for wheelchairs.

You can either take the underground from St Enoch to Hillhead or use buses numbers 9 & 6. I hope this helps.
